So funny how my dh didn't get any of this kind of slack when he went on a two week moto trip up the cape lol I definitely think he deserved that trip too so I'm glad was happy to let me have my trip. Like I said. Good team

After reading more, I say go for it!!
But I'd have the party before you left, if you are doing a part? Or have a cake
What a awesome event to be able to attend! I'f love to see photo if you are allowed to take any, and share.
I love the mansion, but it's just not as good now Holly, Kendra and Bridget have gone. :-(

Go go go as soon as my DS weaned (at 1) I went away for a long weekend with my girlfriends- hardly a 'chance of a lifetime', we just went to one girl's holiday house, drank lots and went to the day spa every day.
I also barely celebrated his 1st birthday. My mum, dad, and PILs came over for cake and champagne, some time around the week of his birthday.
Mother of the year over here! Maybe I should see *my* GP

I just asked him how he felt about that.
He grunted and then went back to whatever he was looking at on Facebook (he is nearly 16).
Honestly, in the long scheme of things, I don't think it matters if you are physically with your child or how long you spend with them on their first birthday.
It does matter though that you care for your child, provide for your child and love your child

A birthday is symbolic more than anything. Being a good parent takes way more than being physically present on a symbolic occasion. Enjoy your trip!

I can see why are a bit torn about this one. First birthdays are a pretty big milestone, I'm not sure what I would do in tht situation.
That said....go!!! Have fun! Like you said, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity, and if you have to miss a childs birthday for it, well at least it's not a birthday they will be old enough to remember
Like others have said, celebrate the birthday before you leave...to be honest it won't really make a difference to a one year old anyhow, at that age they have no understanding of the concept of a birthday. It's really a symbolic occasion for the parents benefit more than anything else!
